The HAAKE Viscotester model VT550 is suitable for viscosity measurements of construction materials with very disperse phases and particles using relative sensors to get reproducible results. The viscometer can be easily upgraded to R&D performance with full computer control.
The construction materials VT550 is supplied as a complete ‘plug & play’ package to meet the requirements of viscosity measurements of construction materials. It is an industry standard for high quality viscosity measurements. It is the most sturdy and professional instrument available on the market. Its wide range of sensors allows upgrading to almost every new application.
The construction materials viscometer:
• Provides the data to allow accurate calculations for pumping slurries and suspensions – avoiding over working of pumps and allows for correct sizing of pipes
• Can be operated manually by the key pad or PC controlled
• Is portable to allow for off site testing if and when required
• Measures practical yield points using CD method (controlled deformation)
• Measures Inhomogeneous materials with particles in mm size
• Records flow curves automatically to monitor the flow behaviour of a fluid or paste
• Has interchangeable rotors to extend measuring range and application
• Can be upgraded to an absolute coaxial-or cone and plate viscometer
The construction materials viscometer is supplied as a complete ‘plug & play’ package to meet the requirements of viscosity measurements of construction materials. It comes complete with Viscotester VT550 instrument, stand, universal joint, rotor FL10, and documentation.
The VT550 is specifically designed for Quality Control Applications. A rotational speed is preset and the flow resistance of the sample is measured, or in other words the torque required to maintain the set speed is proportional to the viscosity. The relevant values such as speed, torque, shear rate, shear stress, viscosity and temperature are digitally displayed and sent to an RS232 printer.
